Three Years After: Phil Davison for President

On December 20, 2011, I uploaded the above video to support Minerva (Ohio) Councilman Phil Davison’s 2012 campaign for President of the United States.  At the time of the release, Davison was seeking the Boston Tea Party’s 2012 nomination for president.  The video features a cover of the AC/DC classic “Thunderstruck,” along with excerpts from the electrifying 2010 speech that burned Davison into collective conscience as “America’s Councilman.”

Days after the release, Boston Tea Party members voted for the nomination.  Davison finished in second place behind student Tiffany Briscoe (who had falsely claimed to be a member of her school’s Board of Trustees).  Activist Robert Milnes finished third.

Once party leadership discovered Briscoe had misled voters, a new election was held.  Davison chose not to run.  Attorney Jim Duensing (who was recently convicted of unlawful possession of a weapon) ultimately received the nomination over activist John Wayne Smith (who recently died). Milnes again finished in third.  The party folded soon thereafter.

Davison, who has since left office as councilman, is currently considering a run for the Libertarian Party’s 2016 presidential nomination.

  1. So what?
    If anything is noteworthy here it is the Boston Tea party had a chance to nominate a fusion ticket Milnes/Johnson or whatever clueless’s name is, and failed. She endorsed Duensing like a good libertarian.
    For 2016, talk about reviving BTP or starting Milstead’s new upper left party which should mandate a fusion ticket in its bylaws. Instead of talk about some dime a dozen republican.
    I’ve suggested calling it The Lexington Green party.

  2. Jill Stein is a Green from Lexington, MA who ran for President, and Lex Green is the Libertarian Party of Illinois chairman and former candidate. How about JIll Stein and Lex Green together on a presidential ticket?
